    Notes 
    • The following was found in a genealogy reference book at Fullerton Library, California and seems to match the sketchy data known so far about Marie. Of particular interest is that this family was indeed from Margenau, Russia, and Marie, who is listed last in the family (hence the youngest at that time) would have been only one year old at the time of this voyage.

      A PASSENGER LIST OF MENNONITE IMMIGRANTS FROM RUSSIA IN 1878
      (Published from the Original Printed List)

      Among the documents in the Mennonite Historical Library at Goshen College is an original passenger list of the North German Lloyd steamer, "Strassburg," from Bremen to New York, sailing 16 June 1878. It came into the possession of the Library as part of the papers of the late John F. Funk of Elkhart, Indiana, who was most active in assisting the Russian Mennonite immigrants on their way to their new homes in the prarie states. As indicated at the head of the list, all mennonites were steerage passengers (the part of a passenger ship occupied by passengers traveling at the cheapest rate, replaced originally by third class and now by tourist class), the customary passage used by poorer immigrants. The list is here reproduced in the original German form exactly as printed in the official passenger list in 1878.
